Book Description

May 25 2010
Now in trade paperback for the first time from Anchor Canada, Joy Fielding's first thriller!

Those goodbye kisses Donna received from her children when ex-husband Victor picked them up for their day's outing with him were for all time . . . forever. Only Donna did not know that, and the memory of her children's kisses on the day they disappeared come back to haunt her, for Victor did not return. Instead, this handsome, twisted man, who had destroyed their marriage and almost destroyed Donna's sanity, vanished with her little boy and girl. And Donna was left with a lover whose love was no longer enough, a new life that had suddenly turned agonizingly empty, and a terror-filled quest to find her children that would take her across the country and beyond the law . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars SUSPENSEFUL... Dec 12 2006
By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is a well written novel of suspense. The plot is expertly crafted and well nuanced, keeping the reader turning the pages. With dialogue that rings true, it makes for a riveting read.

The story revolves around a young woman, Donna Edmunds, who works for an advertising agency. She meets a very handsome man, Victor Cressy, at a company party, and he wines and dines her in dramatic fashion, sweeping her off her feet. Finding him to be a fantastic and attentive lover, as well, he is the man of her dreams. When he proposes two months later, she accepts, thinking that she has died and gone to heaven. What she does not know is that she in on her way to living a hell on earth. You see, Victor Cressy is a sociopath.

At first, the change in Victor and their relationship was imperceptible. It began subtlely with a question here, a question there, a suggestion here, a suggestion there. It then escalated to demands that had to be met, assertions of imagined slights, rules that had to be obeyed. Victor separated Donna from her old friends and family, until her isolation was total. It finally culminated in a control so complete that Donna, as a person in her own right, no longer existed. The cycle of extreme and profound psychological abuse had attained its goal. The old Donna was merely a memory, as the new Donna was too afraid to say anything, do anything, or opine on anything. Instead, a Stepford wife with two children had replaced her.

In reality, Donna was a woman on the edge of a nervous breakdown, an enigma to all who would meet her, asserting herself in bizarre ways which were only a cry for help . One day, Donna meets a man who recognizes her profound despair and treats her as a human being.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD INTRODUCTION TO A GOOD AUTHOR Sept. 28 2000
By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first Joy Fielding book I read. It is a taut thriller that will leave deep imprssions upon its readers. The protagonist is a loving mother who would move mountains for her young son, Adam and daughter Sharon. She is married to a cold fish of sociopath who bears a striking resemblance to Philip, a character in "Good Intentions," which was written some ten years after this was penned. Like Philip, this woman's husband distorts everything she says so he can start arguments; he is verbally and mentally cruel and appears to derive evil pleasure in making her feel bad.
In keeping true to his character, the husband kidnaps the children shortly after his estranged wife remarries. The reader travels with her down some very bumpy roads including a car chase and some fast-paced court scenes before her joyous reunion with her children.

I don't know if this was Joy Fielding's first book, but it's the first book by her that I read and I still read it every year or so and it's been about 15 years! What I love about "Kiss Mommy Goodbye" and all her other books, is that the main character - always a woman - finds herself in unusually horrendous circumstances; she may come to the breaking point, she may even break, but she comes back to herself in a totally realistic way. This is a great book to read when you think you can't do anything right because you can come back fighting right along with the heroine! It is probably my most favorite of all her books! Read her!
